Hronek was absent from Monday's practice with a non-COVID illness, though coach Jeff Blashill anticipates he'll be available against Boston on Tuesday.

Hronek is stuck in a 13-game goal drought but has racked up eight helpers over that stretch, including one with the man advantage. If Hronek does miss out versus the Bruins, it should mean increased ice time for Gustav Lindstrom, including a possible role with the No. 2 power-play unit.
